Feature Recipe For The Week 04/08/2017
This recipe was adapted from one published by 'Cooking Light' (Aug 2010 publication). Here, bananas and peanut butter are combined together with True Cinnamon, and Pumpkin Pie Spice to create a delicious and healthy bread. Serve it as a snack or a breakfast treat (kid's love it). Either way, you have a wonderful, moist bread with flavors that go together just perfectly. Ingredients:
3 medium mashed ripe bananas
1/3 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (I use 'Jif Natural' peanut butter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tblspn melted butter
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp True Cinnamon
3/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf pan (regular size or mini loaf tins) with cooking spray.
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Add the sugars and beat with a mixer until blended.
Combine the flour and the next 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and beat until blended.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Bake for 1 1/2 hours (for the regular size loaf pan) or about 40 minutes for the mini loaf pans or until a knife inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Cool the baked bread on a rack.
